Harry Tensing’s jewellery exhibition „Another Life”
19 Jan – 19 Feb
A-Gallery

Water and plants are inseparable from each other. Without water, a tree will become wood. At the current exhibition, the artist has presented maple, apple and pear tree wood from his home garden – all the trees that have been cut down during his lifetime and the taste of their fruit are still in his mind. While modeling the wood he has attempted to reanimate them in the form of jewellery.
